The automated attendance android application is aimed at providing a new, quick and easy way of registering attendance. It tries to reduce the nuances of the traditional or manual process of marking attendance in which the teacher has to call out the roll number of every student in the class and mark his/her attendance after he/she has acknowledged or responded to it. An online system has been developed which aims to reduce the duration of the entire attendance taking process and reduce proxies entirely. It also includes an offline feature which is kept as a contingency plan if the online feature cannot function normally due to some technical difficulty and it has the same ground rules as the generic process. Teachers will no longer have to carry any sheet or register to mark student's attendance. Teachers can generate the defaulters list by retrieving the data from the database stored online and hence the entire process will require less or no paper at all.
